Egypt is experiencing some gas shortages this month. A friend told me that he had to wait in line at the station for two hours to get gas the other day. We are very glad, yet again, that we do not own a car, though my field trip yesterday experienced a hiccup when the bus driver failed to inform us that he would not be coming to pick us up because he had no gas. AUC is talking about cutting back on the scheduled bus times during the shortage.
I took this photo this week of the gas station by our house (the cars in the photo are parked waiting to fill up). Long lines of cars make traffic very slow getting home now.
